There is much to see and do when you visit Glasgow. 48 hours isn’t long enough to pack it all in – a “long” (Bank holiday) weekend would be more realistic. Even then there would be enough things left to entice you back again and again...
This guide aims to help while you are researching your trip. There is a lot of valuable detail, so you may find you come back to it a few times. To make it easier to find specific interests, the signposts below have links to help you quickly find what you are looking for. At the end of each section, there is also a "back to top" link that brings you back to the Table of Contents.
Glasgow is very easy to get around either on foot or using the very good public transport network. So while you may choose to stay near the attractions that interest you most, other areas will also be easy to get to.
Or as the Scots say "Ceud mìle fàilte" (a hundred thousand welcomes - Scots are a very friendly bunch and doubly so in Glasgow).
